Keeping your creative heart warm...


Happy 2016!!
Winter is a wonderful time to feed the creative fires in your heart. I love to spend my days in the studio reimagining, exploring, wondering, and experimenting. Do you make time to do this? I hope so! 

So how will you nurture your creative heart in 2016?  I began the year with a bang by teaching an evening of painting with SEABA's Art Under the Influence series. We called it "everything but the brush" and that is what we did! It was a fun, relaxed evening where participants discovered and reinvigorated their creative hearts. 

Speaking of instruction, it makes a great gift for yourself or a special someone. You can now purchase instructional sessions on my website. Whatever you do, don't neglect your creative fires, they can bring such joy and healing, and we can all use a bit of that.
